Jo’s initial yoga teacher training was in Astanga yoga with Beryl Bender Birch. Since that time, Jo has been certified to teach Adaptive Yoga by Matthew Sanford, Trauma Sensitive Yoga by David Emerson, Yoga Nidra by Jennifer Reis, Yoga of 12 Step Recovery with Nikki Myers and Yin Yoga with Biff Mithoefer. Jo has a deepening love and appreciation for Bhakti Yoga and finds her heart cracking wide open as she studies and practices with Manoj Chalam, Sean Johnson and the Wild Lotus Band, and Gaura Vani. Her studies also include Iyengar and Anusara yoga, with many amazing, inspiring, loving teachers.
Jo’s personal experience with Post Traumatic Stress (PTSD) inspired her to work with individuals with PTS, to help them manage their stress and heal. Jo’s practice informs her teaching. She’s found that everyone benefits from learning and practicing coping skills to help manage personal stress. She greatly values and teaches stress reduction techniques including posture practice, meditation, focused breathing, and yoga nidra in her yoga classes.
Jo is also a certified professional ski instructor who loves to ski and share her passion for the sport with others. A lifelong learner who subscribes to experiential education, Jo finds that a balanced combination of physical activity, being in nature, practicing the different limbs of yoga, and eating well, leads to a spiritual, mental and physical life of health and happiness. She loves to share these practices with friends, family, and individuals who are in search of healing and happiness.
Live Stream Private Yoga Sessions are available with other members of Heart of the Village Yoga Staff. Please email Jo to inquire.
Bob has been helping people grow and realize their full potential for over 40 years. Using a down-to-earth practical style of communication and a wisdom that comes with many experiences (and age), Bob has recently been offering one-on-one personal coaching to a limited number of Heart of the Village Studio members. Seeing the unique potential in each student, Bob’s work is student-driven to empower and inspire each student to realize their goals in life! Whether a student’s intentions are to find peace of mind or enduring happiness, to increase strength or flexibility, or to build personal power or resilience, Bob helps guide and support each student along their way.
Heart of the Village Yoga Teaching – If your goals are to develop yoga practices which are relevant to you and your current life situation, Bob will help you develop your practice. Bob can draw upon his expertise in Power Yoga, Vinyasa Flow Yoga, Restorative Yin Yoga, Aerial “Anti-Gravity” Yoga, Adaptive and Trauma-Sensitive Yoga, Yoga Nidra, or Bhakti Yoga. Lessons often begin with breathing exercises and mindfulness-based practices to focus attention on what’s important in the here and now, and evolve to physical practices which are designed for each student’s unique body.
Bringing Heart to Life Coaching – If your goals are to reduce stress and struggles and find a more lasting happiness and peace of mind, Bob will draw upon various teachings from ancient Eastern and Indigenous cultures in ways that will help bring these teachings to life. Often times, our struggles in life can be shifted by how we see things – our perspective or point of view. Bob will guide you through a Four Perspective approach to help you find your way and stay on course.
Functional Strength Training – If your goals are to have specialized training programs designed for your body, Bob will utilize his background in personal training, functional strength training, pain-free performance, and sports coaching to develop exercises just for you. Whether your intentions are to be more lean, to move with more ease, to be stronger, or to perform better, Bob will coach you through body-weight and functional-strength-building routines, weight-training methods, and day-to-day training programs, all of which are designed to progress over time.
